Property Tax Attorney

Commercial & Residential Properties


Our goal is to reduce your property tax bill.

The issue in a property tax appeal case is the county's opinion of the fair market value of your property.

The tax bill is comprised of the fair market value multiplied by the millage rate.

Therefore, if we can reduce the fair market value then we reduce your property tax bill proportionally.

Case Study #1

$54,435 Savings on the Property Tax Bill for an 8 acre parcel of Industrial Real Estate

The original tax assessment on a 8 acre industrial property was $6,985,100. We were able to file an appeal to reduce the tax assessment to $3,625,700. The issues in this appeal were value, uniformity and functional obsolescence.


Case Study #2

$181,191 Savings on a portfolio of Georgia locations for National Retail Company over the 3 year freeze

This national retail company put out an RFP for the appeals on all their locations in Georgia. We earned their business and reduced their property tax liability substantially.


Case Study #3

OCGA 48-5-299c

"The three year freeze"

Client owned 8 residential rental properties. We were not able to reduce the tax value on any of the properties, but because of OCGA 48-5-299c, the tax value is frozen and has not increased for 3 years.
